duplicating is not stealing.
when i steal something from you, you no longer have it.
When you steal something that I created, or have the property rights to, then it is stealing. Duplicating something that you arent authorized to have in the first place is in fact, stealing.
For each copy you make and distribute, its a seperate count.
I am positive if you and other created something that cost millions of dollars, and others decide to steal it and distribute it, forcing you to lose out on the fruits of your creation, you would be upset as well.
if your on the list just go buy the movie from a shop..im sure its in the bargin bin.. as you said your allowed to have back ups if you own the orginal....
